Taryn and Barbara were helpful from the start of the booking right until we left the house. The house itself was a little difficult to find in the dark, but we managed, as Taryn mentioned sat nav's don't find it. But old fashioned maps work! Maybe a brighter sign on the lane? The house itself was very roomy and in total we had 13 (11adults &2 children) staying, after an arrangement with Taryn. The kitchen was large enough to seat us all, it would be useful to have some more kitchen equipment such as baking trays, bowls for serving etc, there was however plenty of crockery, mugs and cutlery. We had a great stay, just a shame not for longer as we didn't have time to walk around the countryside from the house. Hopefully we will get another chance to visit and for longer next time. Thanks to you both.

There was a lovely goody box on arrival including biscuits, chocolates and crisps (this was a really nice touch). The bed was super comfy. I would recommend this place without hesitation.

Alex and his family were very welcoming and the cottage is just lovely. From the moment we arrived at the well equipped cottage and the lovely homely touches and beautiful flowers it was a joy to stay - cosy, very clean and situated perfectly to explore Devon, Somerset and Dorset. Thank you guys for inviting us along to your firework display and bbq which was above and beyond! We would recommend this cottage anytime and are planning to return when we can
